Chompers makes brushing teeth more fun for kids -- and adults!

Just say "Alexa, open Chompers!"

One of my all-time favorite Alexa skills is Chompers, which was created to help make brushing teeth more fun for kids.

Even though I'm not a kid, I decided to try out Chompers. The narrator intersperses helpful tooth brushing tips and reminders ("start brushing on the top of your mouth on one side") with funny jokes ("How does the troll get to work every day? He takes the fairy!") to create a silly and productive 2 minutes of tooth brushing. It will make your kids want to brush every night! And you'll want to brush your teeth along with them :)

3 Chompers pro tips:

  1. It's fun for adults too! Even though Chompers was made for kids, it's fun (and maybe even a little useful) for adults too! So tonight, try brushing your teeth with your kids and the Chompers Alexa skill. Even if you don't have kids, Chompers can add a little silly humor to a mostly mundane task :)
  2. Every day brings new jokes. Every day has a different theme with new jokes, riddles and stories to keep kids engaged night after night.
  3. Chompers helps build good brushing habits. The skill counts the times you brush and celebrates brushing streaks.
